01 this year, the President had invited young people Youth Festival at the Villa Hammerschmidt Auch. That has become almost a tradition in Bonn since Richard von Weizsäcker in the Office.
2,000 young people from 39 different countries cavorted on the lawn and in providing the tents in the Park of the Villa Hammerschmidt. The youth group from the Eastern bloc countries were particularly numerous this year.
Richard von Weizsäcker quickly came to contact with its young guests. Youth groups, were intensively seeking international understanding were invited: Boy Scouts, dance and music groups and young trade unionists. Constantly, the Federal President was the intent. The main issues were disarmament, environmental protection and peace. Despite many serious discussions and questions the youth meeting with the U.S. President at the Villa Hammerschmidt was but a mostly cheerful celebration, an informal meeting of young people with each other and with politicians. Everyone met everyone and some friendship was closed.
Who had lust, listened to music that speaks to young people across all boundaries, such as the rhythms of the Peter Herbolzheimer band.
This time, the young Frenchman who found particularly strong appeal with shows in the tradition of their country were the strongest group.
02. IVA 88 the IVA, the "international transport exhibition" in Hamburg turned out to be World Forum of transport. 3,000 traffic experts, the Transport Ministers of almost all Western and Eastern European countries exchanged their experiences and thoughts on how the traffic of the future will develop. New technical developments such as this bus, which saves electrical power at the stops and is therefore also particularly environmentally friendly, enable new transport concepts.
The rapid development of air transport in recent decades, the growing density of road traffic and the growing number of new ob kills in the transport policy as well as new technical solutions make necessary won accidents.
The development of safety equipment in the car as the "air bag" plays an important role here.
Visitors of the IVA was demonstrated in the specially designed "racetrack" drastically what destructive forces in the collision of a car are free.
A vehicle that can drive on the road as well as on the rail, is the new "mini Loco". Serves manoeuvring at the ever-increasing top speed by road, to the rail. Because! The railway appears in importance to win at all. The exhibition station with the eupopäischen high-speed trains was the main attraction of the IVA jendenfalls. The pattern pieces of the new German "Transrapid Europe" broke through all conventional ideas of how the railway of the future can unfold.
The "Transrapid" floats - without wheels - on extremely strong magnetic fields. Excursions to the testing facility in East Frisia convinced even skeptics. This can be - so many experts believe - the means of transport revolutionierende the future. The question of who can muster the multibillion-dollar investments for up to 500 kilometres of fast "Transrapid", is however not yet been answered.
03. peasant wedding "Beautiful old land" is the largest Orchard of Europe, only a few kilometres southwest of Hamburg Sung this song. Here, tradition is still alive. Jacob and Martina Ueck give the Yes-Word in historical wedding dress. With the "flunk-wreath", the headdress studded with flowers, the old countries occurred before centuries down the aisle brides.
At home, the bridal gate decorated by friends and relatives expected - according to an old custom - the young couple. Jakob Ueck is fruit grower, like most in the "old country" on the Elbe River.
This bridal gate was opened earlier only twice in every old countries: marriage and the burial. This has of course changed. You must take over Yes finally not everything, just because's practice is. One prefers modern clothes for the feast in the evening.
Invited they have but according to an old custom publicly, the local newspaper. Everyone can come. It is here that guests give money to the young spouses, packaged in envelopes.
The real highlight of the Festival is the bridal Waltz. For all, the two prove symbolically that they are able to go to the same beat through life.
The big day for Jacob and Martina Ueck ends at midnight. This threw the bouquet under the young unmarried women. If you catch him, you will be the next bride in the village. A little superstition is at it - but most of all have fun.
04. for eyes and ears, even the old Orchestrions appealed to eyes and ears of the audience to lure them.
Visual sounds, musical visions: The correlation between music and Visual art appealed to Stephan by Kühne to the design of equally visible how audible works. With the tester, wires and electronic devices he created his "Dead sound", organ pipes with a life of their own fantasy art creations are set no limits this. Milan Knizak from: Czechoslovakia was developed on a German exhibition, such as by damage to records new music.
Also noise and people of nearby are processed when the design and some works invite you to join in. Visitors to the art exhibition with the title "eyes and ears" are sometimes shocked; partly interested in and mostly amused.
Very very amusing: The sound sculpture "Step dancers", which again is reminiscent of the old Orchestrions.
05. the Höllentalbahn train through hell! Don't worry, the only "evil" on this 36-kilometer railway line through the Black Forest is the name. But that does not come from about. Still feel travelers, why the rugged Valley of hell in the previous century was regarded as dangerous. Right at the beginning it goes steeply downhill. Therefore, before each train must discard a brakes.
Just so he can safely master the steepest railway line of in Germany.
Managed! But now it really begins. What earlier still considered threatening, attracts crowds of tourists today. About 300,000 of them brings the Hölle Valley railway a year safely at their holiday home. But actually driving and this is more important than arriving In the country look. The heart of amateur photographers will beat faster at the sight of the old stations.
The Valley becomes narrower and narrower, the photographer no longer comes to rest. Earlier, recalls an old track runner, was different: "in the times in which was still a steam locomotive, it was still very cozy in the Höllental, alien above in this section. Since the trains extra slowly, so that passengers could take a picture of the deer".
The stag, so the Sage, saved by a daredevil jump over this Gorge before his pursuers. The train station next door takes its name from! Hirschsprung. A motif!
Who brought the dark hell Valley behind it, is rewarded: he lands straight in the "Kingdom of heaven". The small station is 100 years old, as old as the track itself. The varied descent into hell, which takes only 25 minutes is too short, the best right back joins Freiburg at the end of the line. Smart people buy a return ticket. Or better: A punch card. It's worth.
06. riding baroque backdrop of Wiesbaden has the reputation of being the city with the most beautiful championship course in Europe at the friends of equestrian. Here - or at least very close - even the legendary emperor Barbarossa its tournaments has ridden no wonder. Monarchic magnificence reflects the baroque residence castle of the former Hcrzöge of Nassau, today along with the Park, a truly unique backdrop for the riders - and not just for her!
By this atmosphere, more viewers from dera abroad are attracted to than by any other tournament in Germany.
Sporting the Wiesbaden tournament was an important test of the strength of International Equestrian elite before the summer Olympics. Except the Dressage riders, also the showjumper in the Red Rock took the backdrop of Wiesbaden as an opportunity to try out last subtleties without watching the competitors doing too much in the cards. It was for the German rider in the international box ohnenhin Olympic qualification. Its main competitors in the 22 different tests only occurred from United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Austria and of Switzerland.
The most specialized audience saw excellence. Franke Sloothaak on "Aramis" won the "Grand Prize of Wiesbaden" with no errors. The horse show in front of the castle of Duke fulfilled the expectations of 20,000 visitors this year.
